The 9th US Circuit Court of Appeal in San Francisco heard arguments Monday on California's controversial Proposition 8, which banned gay marriage in the state. Voters approved the initiative in 2008 but it has been tied up on appeals in the courts since then.
The justices allowed cameras in the court for the hearing. Raw unedited video of the hearing is on the left. Still photos that include the both pro and anti gay demonstrations that formed outside the courthouse are in the slideshow on the left.
